Unscripted engagement shoots are the best ones

I'm a strong proponent of engagement shoots being as unscripted as possible.

I'll have a few poses ready, for an engaged couple are more than likely not professional models, but I want my engagement shoots to be authentic to the couple I'm shooting.

That was easy with Justin and Dawna.

I love shooting couples with energy, and they were just that.



Finding one's self through pictures

One of the great things about being a photographer is helping people rediscover themselves, which was the purpose of this beach end-of-year shoot.

We often go into a new year with goals and high expectations. Pictures help us to remember them if things start to stray during the year.

I've worked with countless clients who were either reinventing or rediscovering themselves. It's an honor for me to have such an important role in their personal journies.
